Re: Marine/Aviation Grade Wire Termination

Re: Scorpio ABS sensor substitution

If I remember correctly, when I removed them from a donor, all 4 cables were of different length. From shortest to longest: Left/front, right/front, left/rear, right/rear. Jeff Herson & Jan Talian should know for certain.

Re: Scorpio ABS sensor substitution
